Bartaz, 03 Aug 2016Do you think it is worth getting this or is there any other similar phones that are cheaper?Depends what you're looking for and where you live. You can get Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 with the same specs cheaper than the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 but if you live in the UK and want to take advantage of 4G network that can be a little problem because Xiaomi phones don't support LTE band 20 (800 Mhz). If you want a good multimedia device with front facing speakers then the Vodafone SP7 is the best value when we consider closest new competitors: Alcatel Idol 4S which is a very similar but more expensive device and ZTE Axon 7 which is more powerful and more expensive as well but hard to get as for now. Also you can get last year's but still overpriced HTC M9. Considering all above I have chosen and ordered Vodafone SP7 today. Currently I'm waiting for the delivery ;) And don't worry about a simlock. Vodafone can unlock it for free if you apply for it on their website.

AnonD-516067, 19 Jun 2016Yes but you cannot buy the Alcatel idol 4s as it is the Vodafone smart platinum 7. That's why ... moreAlcatel's product has been released and you can buy it same as the vodafone. They are basically the same phone
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016It is better than Idol 4s because it has fingerprint but Idol 4 doesn't.The idol 4s does have a fingerprint reader. This phone is virtually the exact same as the idol 4s. They both even come with VR headsets.
Dean, 27 Jun 2016I am a Vodafone employee who has been extensively playing around and testing the device and I ... moreis there any unlocked version (non-contract) or international edition of this phone? and does it available with dual sim version? but I don't want alcatel version :)
Cata, 04 Jul 2016Does anyone know if this phone is compatible with Google Cardboard VR?">
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2016It´s an Alcatel idol 4s, with vodafone logo and full of vodafone bloatware...No thanks....It is better than Idol 4s because it has fingerprint but Idol 4 doesn't.
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2016The battery wont be good with 3000 mah at 5.5 inch qhd. The processor will not be amazing- soc... moreI am a Vodafone employee who has been extensively playing around and testing the device and I can say it is fantastic, now it isn't as high spec as the Samsung's and the Sony's of the world but it is fantastic for the price point! Very premium feeling too and if her print reader is super quick nearly as fast as the Nexus 6p.
Great phone, it would have been greatest if it packed snd820 and all its features. Maybe put some more juicy on battery n ram.
its just a rebranded alcatel idol 4s (vodafone uses stock android, good) http://www.gadget.ro/mwc-2016-alcatel-idol-4s-hands-on-si-primele-impresii/
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2016It´s an Alcatel idol 4s, with vodafone logo and full of vodafone bloatware...No thanks....Yes but you cannot buy the Alcatel idol 4s as it is the Vodafone smart platinum 7. That's why alcatels device was never released despite being announced at the start of the year. If you wanted alcatels device you will have to get the Vodafone smart platinum 7. Most of the bloatware can be deleted and the rest can be disabled.
